Which is exactly the problem.  "Some popular standard" could mean anything.  
Not even Americans can agree on what is Correct Title Case(tm) in American 
English.  How do we expect an international community to do so? :-)

I see very little gain here for a lot of debate and work.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
